On Earth we need engineers, farmers, and teachers but what would it be like on a world with different rules?

What occupations can your societies not function without?
Are there enough people in it? How is said job viewed, with respect or with disgust?

Is it something that doesn't even exist in the real world, like being a magician or President of the Secret Society?!

Peacemaker of the Scorpons. The Peacemaker is the leader, but they are called the Peacemaker as their main job is to keep the peace between the Scorpons, who actually fight a lot. Mostly 1 on 1, but sometimes it can escalate, and once it created a civil war. They are chosen by determining who is the most compassionate Scorpon. There are actually a lot of female Peacemakers for this reason, as females genetically are wired to be mothers, while males are wired to be fighters.

My story's set in the USA but it's a dystopia, and some of the most highly valued people are skilled doctors. Injuries, illnesses, etc. are much more common and severe without simple preventatives such as vaccines and proper hygiene, and even a small infection can be fatal if it's not treated right. Doctors actually have to be very careful because if they let slip about their profession to the wrong people, they can be kidnapped and forced to become the medic of a specific group whether they want to or not. So it's basically the most valued job, but in many ways it's also the most dangerous.
